Ho Ho Ho

Where was I?

I feel like I could start all of my infrequent blog posts like that.
The Christmas season is upon us.  The Coopers, some and all, have had a birthday,  made advent crafts, sung in a Christmas program, been shepherds or angels in the Church Christmas pageant, dressed in costume and handed out Bethlehem bread in "walk through Bethlehem",  faithfully moved around the ELF, organized the kindergarten class party and crafts and been on the nighttime drive to look at lights.  Whew.  I'm ready for the drudgery of January (did I really just say that??).

This sweet thing turned 4!  Can you believe it?

Party fun.  We allow the kids to bring as many kids as they are years old, thus Lucy could have invited four friends.  True to form, she just wanted two.

Anna got a medal for knowing all four lists of sight words. She's reading! 

On the crafty front, I have finally managed to make something that Anna loves!  A twirly skirt.  She normally wears it with leggings. 

A monster stocking for a monster-lovin' girl I know.

And I made this for my front door.  I already had the Santa.  I love his little nightmare-before-Christmas spindly legs.  I wrapped a wreath with fabric and used some wool felt balls I made last year to make holly berries. 

Merry Christmas!
